Honeymoon is a 2014 horror film directed by Leigh Janiak that stars Rose Leslie as Bea and Harry Treadaway as Paul, a newlywed couple who travel to a remote cabin in the woods for their honeymoon. The film also features Ben Huber as Will, a local who provides them with a warm welcome. Bea and Paul are clearly in love, and their honeymoon is off to a great start. They seem to be perfectly happy spending time alone together, and the beautiful scenery of the countryside only adds to their romantic getaway. However, things begin to take a darker turn when they start to experience strange occurrences that they can't explain. One night, Paul wakes up to find that Bea is not in bed with him. He goes out to search for her, and eventually finds her outside, standing completely still and staring blankly into space. When he tries to talk to her, she seems confused and disoriented, unable to remember what happened or how she got there. After this incident, things only get worse. Bea begins to exhibit increasingly bizarre behavior, such as having unexplained bruises and cuts on her body and becoming more and more distant from Paul. He tries to take care of her and figure out what's wrong, but he's met with resistance at every turn. As the days pass, Paul starts to uncover strange clues that hint at something sinister happening in the woods. He discovers a strange substance in the lake and finds evidence that someone may have been watching them. He becomes convinced that there is something dangerous lurking in the woods, and that it has taken over his wife. Honeymoon is a slow-burning horror film that relies more on atmosphere and tension than jump scares or gore. The film does an excellent job of building up a sense of unease and paranoia, making the viewer question what's real and what's imagined. The cinematography is beautiful, with the lush greenery of the woods providing a stark contrast to the dark and terrifying events that take place there. Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway give strong performances as the couple at the center of the film. Leslie, in particular, shines in her portrayal of Bea's descent into madness, conveying the character's fear and confusion with a quiet intensity. Treadaway is equally compelling as the husband struggling to hold onto his sanity in the face of the inexplicable. Ben Huber also stands out in his role as Will, the friendly local who may know more than he lets on. Huber's performance adds an eerie touch to the film, making the viewer question his true motives. Overall, Honeymoon is a haunting and unsettling film that will linger in your mind long after the credits roll. It's a must-see for fans of slow-burn horror and psychological thrillers.
